Pool Closed For Resurfacing

The Clubhouse Pool is closed for the next several days to complete the long-awaited resurfacing of the coping (water’s edging). This work has been scheduled for mid-February and involves removing the old coping material and replacing it with Travertine tiles which last longer and offer a better surface for swimmers.  The company will also be resetting several pavers that have become uneven throughout the pool deck area.

The estimated date of completion is February 20, but check back for updates.
